Intro to Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay –
Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay from the Mornington Peninsula has a vibrant nose of citrus and tropical fruit, figs, ground almonds and underlying minerality. The palate opens up to a delicate creaminess with layers of hazelnut, figs and oatmeal characters balanced with apple and citrus fruits with good length & texture.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Sandro Mosele, Kooyong’s winemaker, combines an Italian heritage with an Australian ‘can-do’ attitude and a love of Burgundy, a multi-cultural mix which finds expression through these archetypal cool-climate wines from the Mornington Peninsula. It tastes like Chassagne-Montrachet that costs twice as much! An aromatic nose with fresh lime/ lemon and mineral characters, balanced with toasted nuts, white peach and a soft creaminess. The palate is bright and again minerally with the same attractive balance of pert citrus zing and layers of texture.
In the winery there are wooden fermenters and French oak barriques (10% new), where fermentation takes place. After fermentation the wine is aged on lees for 10 months and it is bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
The producer –
Surrounded by mounds of native grasses and indigenous spotted gums, the new Port Phillip Estate winery emerges from the landscape as a dramatic curved sculpture made of rammed-earth. Inside, a large cellar door and tasting room, and a light-filled restaurant open out on to an expansive outdoor deck. Underneath, state-of-the-art winemaking facilities, a barrel room, bottling line, wine processing plant, cellaring and offices share space with six luxury accommodation suites, complete with private decks. Views across the vines to the sea are panoramic.
The Port Phillip Estate winery is situated at Red Hill in the heart of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula wine region 80km south of Melbourne. The landmark building opened in November 2009 as the new home of Kooyong and Port Phillip Estate wines.
The museum wine store and barrel room are five metres below ground level, forming a natural cellar with ideal humidity and temperature for wine storage. There’s no need for heating and cooling. Solar panels and water reclamation and recycling are part of an ongoing philosophy of environmental responsibility at Port Phillip Estate.
